Safety is important no matter who you are: patient, caregiver, nurse, staff member. And no matter where you are: home, hospital, hospice, nursing facility. Safety--your safety, and ours--is a matter of great importance when someone is on hospice.
The primary goal of hospice is comfort, so it makes sense that hospice personnel want to do everything possible to help patients and caregivers maintain an environment that is safe and comfortable. This episode will explain the different ways that hospice staff can assess and recommend ways to create a safe environment for the patient and everyone else who enters the home.
